Call for Submission: Unmanned Press’s Short of the Month

21 September 2012


As part of our commitment to emerging and underserved writers, beginning in November 2012, each month we will publish a short work of fiction on our blog and feature that author on our website. Selected authors are paid $250. This year it’s an experiment. Next year, it’s an annual anthology and maybe a podcast. It’s a fluid experiment, OK?  Please visit our Submittable page to send your freakishly awesome short stories our way. Submissions to our Short of the Month are accepted year round, rain or shine. We look for stories that exhibit literary skill and those that bite.

Submission Guidelines:
All submissions must go through our Submittable page

All submissions must be previously unpublished

​Length is entirely up to the author

You are welcome to submit more than one story, albeit not at the same time. Please wait until we respond before sending another submission.

We suggest a $3 reading nod (100% optional)
The $3 reading fee is put toward our small but diligent operation, which means you’ll be supporting awesome small press authors and the independent literary community. That being said, this is NOT a required fee. Unmanned welcomes writers to submit to our Short of the Month series, fee or no fee, and whatever choice you make; it will have absolutely no bearing on your submission(s). We are grateful for the opportunity to read your work and thank you in advance for your interest, support, and readership. We adore you.
